Waffles, Pitcher and Iron

Subiaco’s Pitcher and Iron serves traditional Belgian-style waffles with a decadent twist. Choose from a light and airy Brussels base or doughy and dense Liege waffle to support the mountainous toppings on offer. Flavours do not shy away from extravagance, ranging from matcha-chocolate topping to fairy floss or lemon cheesecake flavoured ice-cream, with portion-sizes to match. If your sweet tooth is still not satisfied, wash down your waffles with a milkshake or premium Callebaut hot chocolates available.

Pitcher and Iron is open Wednesday to Friday from 3pm to 10pm, and 11am to 10pm on the weekend.
